Not much of a happy post

More like how I feel at the moment. I feel like I kind of need to vent to the blogging world. I don't really know where I am going with this post, so bear with me. This is how I feel right now:


At times I get down and discouraged while other times I feel as if am on cloud 9. We all need to have our down times because if we didn't, we wouldn't appreciate the good times as much. I just have to remind myself that everything will work out the way that it is suppose to. One thing that I have learned is to have patience. No, I have still not mastered the patience thing, but I am working on it. I want to end on one more note:


Thanks for all of you for being there for me and being my friend! (you know who you are)
The end

More Sneak Peaks and Giveaways!

Who likes sneak peaks and GIVEAWAYS!? I sure do! We have decided to give away some handmade goodies to the first 25 people who come to visit our booth. Are you in? Here is your first sneak peak.

I hope your week is going great! Mine sure has been crazy. So much to do in so little time.


BIG news!!!

As I may have hinted in a few posts ago, we are going into business! Yes, that's right! My 2 sisters (as well as our mom) and I are going into business. This has definitely been a work in progress and still is. It's new to us. So please be patient with us. It's obviously new to you as well and I hope that you can be as excited as we are! To get a feel of what we will be selling, please join us at the Chocolate Festival Valentine's weekend. That will only be a taste of the things we have in store for you! Help spread the word! We would like to see you there! Please stick around for more updates on Three Sisters.

Sneak Peak

I told you I would have a sneak peak for you. You probably didn't think it was going to be this soon. Well neither did I. I am definitely in the bloggy blog mood. I think it's a stress reliever (since I am back in school now). I guess that's a good thing. I sure did have fun shopping for them, but I am kind of scared to use them. I'm a paper girl. I have become pretty good on the sewing machine when it comes to paper. I know that's not the main use for a sewing machine, but it's easier than sewing flimsy fabrics. That's when I lose my patience if things don't go right. I am just so drawn to the awesome patterns and colors on these fabrics so I could not help myself. Can anybody guess what I am going to do with these lovely fabrics? It's definitely not the usual.

Chocolate anyone?

I know I will want chocolate! It does not even matter if it's Valentine's weekend or not. If you want to have a little getaway just for the weekend, head to Bear Lake, UT and visit the chocolate festival. You can even drive up for the day. It will be totally worth it. There is more than just chocolate; there are going to be handmade things from so many talented people! I know some of the things that they will be selling, but that will be for another post. I will have sneak peaks to share with you soon so I hope you are getting excited! I am lucky to say that I will have the privilege to sell some of my handmade goodies too. If you have never been to Bear Lake in the winter, I think you should test it out because it is gorgeous in the winter as it is in the summer. I hope to see you there and make sure you say hi.

20 when 20

I kind of forgot about this list I made to do when I am 20. I was quite nervous to look at it to see if I even did most the things. I surprised myself and actually did more than I thought I did. So here it is.

1. Laugh a lot. I don't think I go a day without doing this.
2. Take a chance even if it doesn't come out successful. yes and it felt good.
3. Go on a trip out of state with friends. Did it! California

4. Feel more confident about myself. Still needs some work.
5. Eat healthier. Doing pretty good with this one since the beginning of this year. Does that count?
6. Make the best out of any bad situation. I think I'm pretty good at doing that at the most part.
7. Make some new friends, but keep the old too of course! a definite yes!
8. Take the time and read a few books. I figured out that I can't hold still long enough to read anymore.
9. Create for myself. YES
10. Turn more cants into cans. so so
11. Turn dreams into reality known as plans. I'm feeling this one.
12. Love and appreciate school. I tell this to myself EVERYDAY. AND it changes everyday too.
13. Learn a new hobby. Yes and LOVE it! -Book Binding is my new hobby!

14. Remind all the people I love how much I appreciate them in my life. Every time I do this one it sure makes me feel good inside.
15. Spend more time outdoors and enjoy it! For sure did this one as much as possible.
16. Help someone in need. Did it.
17. Remember "that Moment" and cherish it. I have some and I do cherish them every day.
18. Do something exotic, still trying to figure out what that might be. (my hair?) I forgot I wrote this one and I did do it. see?

19. RELAX and take time for myself and forget the world for a bit. Relax? What does that mean? I guess I did this over Christmas break.
20. Write thank you notes. Need to always be better at this one.

What do you have on your list of things that you want to do? I would love to hear about them!

Better late

than never, right? Here is to Christmas 2009.
This past Christmas was awesome.
I am mad at myself for not taking very many photos.
So here are the ones that were priceless (like my dad's face thanks to my mom).
